Just hours after his disappointing sixth place finish in New Hampshire Tuesday night, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is returning to his home state to reevaluate the state of his campaign rather than travel to South Carolina.

While Christie hasn’t officially suspended his campaign, the writing appears to be on the wall!

From Politico:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie decided not to drop out of the presidential race after a lackluster showing in the New Hampshire primary. But in his speech here in Nashua, he also announced that he’s not going to South Carolina, as the campaign had said he would.

Instead, Christie said he and his wife, Mary Pat, are going back to New Jersey.

“Mary Pat and I spoke tonight and we’ve decided to go home to New Jersey tomorrow and we’re going to take a deep breath and see what the results are tonight,” Christie said. “By tomorrow morning or tomorrow afternoon we should know.”

Christie added that after they know the results, “that should allow us to make a decision.”
